Even the most experienced business travelers are often challenged when it comes to planning for tradeshows. Hundreds of companies from different countries attend these events, so you must put your best foot forward to avoid wasting time and money. Here are practical travel tips for your next tradeshow.
Charge All Electronics Before Traveling
Nowadays, you want to stay connected with friends and business partners at all times, because anything can happen. You can’t risk being inaccessible when people need you most. Charge your gadgets before leaving the house.
Check the weather forecast as well. The weather will dictate which type of clothes you need. In addition, remember to check to see if there is a dress code for the tradeshow.
Packing a mobile pantry is also a great decision. Tradeshows often mean long days for exhibitors. Keeping snacks on-hand will help you stay focused and energized throughout the day. Better yet, bring snacks for your entire booth team! They will love you for it. Keep in mind that for international shows you should try to carry these items in your luggage instead of shipping.
Plan for Transportation Fare
Traveling to convention centers from airports can be tricky. A cab is an excellent means of transportation, but it can be expensive. Public transit systems, such as buses or trains, are cheaper and often safer, as there are more people around. Apps like Uber and Lyft are also ideal because they are often cheaper than taxis and their apps offer security features to ensure you have a safe ride.
